We stayed for four nights in the Hotel Tavernier. Would definitely recommend it as a ski hotel. We ate in the restaurant twice - once the food was excellent, once average but overrall it is good value for the price. Rooms were excellent although TV was a bit small but if you on a skiing holiday you are not there to watch TV! In addition there is a nice sauna and spa in the Hotel.
The best thing about the hotel is the location - it is a five minute walk to the quick, modern bubble lift to the slopes. If you do no thave your own skis you can hire your skis once on the slopes which makes it even quicker.
The location is not that central for the shops, bars and restaurants of Courmayeur - it is about a 10-15 minute walk but most people would probably agree close to the ski lifts is more important.
One other point - if you are driving there (we came from Turin and it was an easy 90 minute drive) it is best not to park in their car park as it is very difficult to manouvre up and down the slope particularly if there has been snow. When you arrive try and park outside or close by to offload luggage and then leave the car in the public car park 2 minutes away.
All in all a very nice hotel particularly if you pay 100 EUR a night for a double which is what we paid (HoweverI think we did not go in peak season as we went end of Jan)
