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...

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.

From the moment I talked to the owner on the phone, to the moment we left the motel, we felt welcome and excited about Mackenzie's Motel and Cottages. The overall memory of the weekend in July, 2014 was very positive. Everything was absolutely spotless, including the shining outdoor pool. The breakfast was filling and fresh. The bed was comfortable and...

Mackenzie's was the cleanest, friendliest place to stay! We thoroughly enjoyed our "visit" at this location. We stayed only one night throughout our travels of Nova Scotia, but when we go back, we will definitely stay there again! Highly recommend.
