My wife and I stayed at Mackenzie's recently and found it to be a good experience. The room was clean and in good condition as was the exterior. The service was friendly and the breakfast next morning was very good. Would recommend this motel and cottages to anyone.

Mackenzie's Motel was wonderful - very, very clean which is our number one requirement. The owners, Jim and Sandra, were very pleasant and helpful. The breakfast, (so good), included hot,home made muffins and tea bisquits, fruit, toast, hot hard boiled eggs, etc. It was prepared in a bright little room from which you could overlook the pool - a great...

This is not a fancy Victorian house spa hotel. It is not a resort. It is not a chain hotel with predictable appointments. This is a family-run motel which offers three types of accommodation: motel room, a couple of suites in the main building, or cottages. We stayed in a suite and were very comfortable. There was a large comfy...

We were fortunate to have followed up on a friends recommendation and, on very short notice, had the pleasure of staying at this lovely motel in beautiful Shelbourne,NS. The manager/owner was both friendly and helpful. The room was clean,tasteful and very comfortable. I look forward to visiting the area again and would definitely recommend the MacKenzie motel to anyone.

Stayed there 2 nights. Very comfortable older location. Very clean. Very friendly and obligatin staff. Centrally located. Pool was clean and warm. Included breakfast was OK. We had a room, but a cottage would have been great if family was with us.

Actually didn't intend to stay in Shelburne only visit the historic port. Car broke down outside of Shelburne and had to find a place to stay. Got a ride (with family) to Mackenzie's Motel and Cottages and the owners / operators couldn't have been nicer. They actually offered to lend us their car, on a number of occasions, to save...

My wife and I, and three kids (aged 16,6,6) stayed at Mackenzie's on our summer holiday to visit our folks in Shelburne, coordinating with my brother's and sister's families who also stayed at Mackenzie's.

It is an older motel so don't expect anything special. It was central spot, clean & friendly, walking distance to the waterfront. Close to some restaurants by the water. It was a good price for the money.
