I stayed here 5 nights with my boyfriend and four friends. The family running this hotel are lovely and can't do enough to help. After the first night I complained the bed was too hard, and they swapped it while we were out!
The rooms are quite small but well furnished in a mountain/cabin style and the bathrooms are large and very clean (although we didn't have a bath).
Breakfast was what you expect in mainland Europe: cold meat and cheese, bread and, for those with a sweet tooth, the custard-filled croissants are wonderful. The food was constantly replenished, of if things did run out they were soon replaced.
They run a shuttle to the gondola to get to the slopes between 8:30 and 10:00 and back between 3:30 and 4:30 and were quite flexible if we were a little bit late.
The main downside was that there wasn't free WIFI, but at €2 or an hour (cheeper for more hours), it wasn't extortionate, and I am told very fast.
The one thing to note about Courmayeur itself is that the restaurants all book up, and, if oyu want your dinner before 10pm it is well worth booking in advance (even if it is just as you are heading down form the slopes for later that evening).
Overall, we all really enjoyed our stay here, especially due to the warmth and friendliness of our hosts.
