Trader is located inside the Explorer Hotel. We stayed at the Coast Fraser, but ended up going to Traders Grill twice because our first meal was so good. Wonderful service, nice woodsy views and great food.

The explore hotel is lovely and their restaurant I was worth a visit. Tried the elk loin which was very good. Everyone was happy with their meals. Its fairly pricey but not unexpectedly so.
