Tallink Hotels Case Study
Tallink Hotels is a subsidiary of the shipping company Tallink Grupp, which operates four hotels in Estonia and one hotel in Latvia. The headquarters are located in Tallinn, Estonia, and currently, four hotels are working with GuestJoy,
GuestJoy is helping the hotels increase pre-sales guest revenue whilst also enhancing guest satisfaction, thus building further brand loyalty.

Business Development Director of Tallink Hotels
Tallink Hotels, has historically engaged with guests once in-house, often meaning low revenue returns, poor staff and resource scheduling for the hoteliers and missed opportunities to build guest engagement.
In this digital age with tech-savvy guests demanding more and more information at their fingetips, Tallink Hotels turned to GuestJoy. Up-selling pre-stay was minimal, communications with guests were out dated and not personalised. GuestJoy provides personalised guest communications, enabling the hoteliers to learn more about their guests and deliver intuitive messages which enhance the level of communications and build longer lasting relationships.
Tallink Hotels wanted an automated approach, freeing up valuable staff time and enabling a more personalised approach, delivering more revenue. The hotel manager should be able to optimize messages and promote special offers to guests prior to their arrival.
GuestJoy was implemented effortless, whilst the integration to the Opera PMS was straightforward.
”GuestJoy enables hotels to earn extra revenue through pre-stay offers. When the customers arrive at the hotel, they are already aware of different services and additional information, such as parking and other relevant amenities, for instance. This, in return, enables to proceed quickly with the check-in process, thus increasing customer satisfaction with front desk service,”
