I had high expectations and Split Apple did not disappoint. Location, views, hospitality - this has everything one could ask for. We even were invited to help ourselves to a beer after a hot journey, Definitely one of the best stays in a wonderful holiday in New Zealand.

We had a wonderful stay at the lodge. It is the perfect place for relaxation, star gazing, and it is centrally located to Able Tasman area. The rooms / lodge were spotless, the host was a great breakfast cook! Overall, it was a good value for the dollar.

Situated up in the hills the Split Apple Lodge has wonderful views (go for the sea view rooms if you can), is spotless, lovely well appointed rooms and run by a charming and helpful couple. Although walking into Moteuka is not practical, it's a five minute drive down a quiet road with great scenery. We would not hesitate to stay... More

What a super surprize when we reached the top of the road , more like a mountain lodge with so much spaces indoors and out. Very friendly hosts giving advice for out trips and offering super breakfast around a large table which made for a very social start to the day

Best place we've ever stayed at! The hosts are so friendly and welcoming. Spotless clean room and en suite with beautiful toiletries. The breakfast was a surprise, fresh and healthy. The sun streamed into the lounge area in the morning that had been warmed by a lovely log heater the previous evening.

Set in a beautiful garden this lodge provides great comfort, cleanliness and all you could ever want for a delightful break. Breakfast could not be bettered. Eating out in the evening was fun although booking was advisable A short drive away there were a few places that served great meals. For fun try the Fat Tui.

The place , surroundings and ambience and the hosts are all great. The breakfast is also excellent with plenty of fruit and cereals . The rooms however have no air conditioning and those on the western side are exposed to the afternoon sun making them uncomfortable on warm afternoons or evenings until everything cools down. The owners are looking into... More

The Split Apple B&B isn't what I'd call "homey" -- it's very stark in a "Scandinavian" sort of way. However, that look suits it fine, and as such, it's still a very comfortable, welcoming place to stay. We were there two nights during our 21-day trip to New Zealand. Our room had a tremendous view of the extremely well-kept garden... More
