What makes you think we wouldn't, Karen? I didn't. I asked in my first post: Do British native speakers subscribe to the above definition?
If I used the term "restroom" in a UK context (as opposed to a US context), then that's what I'd mean - though in practice I'd probably use a different term.
There's some discussion in this previous thread: Can "rest room" have another meaning than "toilets"?

I do. When I was young, I was puzzled by American references to restrooms having toilets in them - I imagined a room with low tables and people in armchairs sitting about whilst people went to the toilet.British native speakers subscribe to the above definition?
