Small room that needs attention
As far as guests rooms go, it doesn't seem too bad, although your choice of manchester does make a smallish room look smaller. I would consider changing the sliding doors to the robe to mirrored doors to bounce some light around, to give the impression that the room is bigger and make it feel more luxe.
The bedhead and manchester are quite different colours that don't really work together, with the bedhead being a deep blue grey, and the manchester being more of a black. I would be changing the manchester to match in with some of the warmer tones used in the ensuite.
Best of luck,

I love the bed head but agree with retro that the linen and also the black lamp and tables don’t work with it, Small room, take out the black. Play up to the tones in the bed head keeping the linen base color fresh and light. The carpet is just a base
I agree with the comments about the linen. Plain white linen with a soft cosy throw would be more inviting. Soft white muslin tightly pinched curtains (sheers) also softens a room. then add colour with a small piece of art on the biggest wall and a couple of matching throw cushions. Voila!
Agree with previous comment - nice style white linen, think high thread count hotel style for a lux look. Decorate with a nice throw if you want a feature colour, and then add some funky cushions.
I feel like the side tables could be replaced with something a bit more modern - something wooden and bit chunkier would compliment the masculine style of the bed head better...or if you want to keep them small those wooden tripod bedside stool tables look pretty cool and sometimes come with colour on the bottom of the legs for a fun touch! Then just add some modern bedside lights - or ditch the bedside lights and add a modern floor lamp in the corner.
I think you’ve made a drastic change, looks great, how about some nice sheer curtains?
I would add mirror or picture frame behind the lampshades, would make the glass on them pop. Your bedsides needs to be higher, level to the top of the mattress. Some small decor on the bedsides, maybe white flowers, I love greenery, hydrangeas or rose buds. Rug on the end of the bed in a trellis design or something you fancy but light colour I feel would look nice. Decorative side panel curtains (to save money) installed high, it will also help with the light that filters through the blinds.
All the best with it.
Love it; anything monochromatic with a asymmetrical pattern is great it has a real aspect of glamour about it.
You can play on tones of shiny silver and black add some texture with a beautiful faux fur throw. If your going to add a rug make sure it’s under the section of the bed where guests get out and put their feet down.
I agree the changes you have made look great. I think a tallish luxe mirror situated behind each lamp would look great and add some extra light and height to the room. If there is room, I like a simple chair in a corner or a small bench at the end of the bed - somewhere to perch your wheelie bag in a guest room.
Further, I like the bed side tables and lamps, the glass/ crystal is great in a small room. If you added a stool or bench you could go with clear crystal. I also think sheers on the window would be nice and adds some privacy even when the blind is open.
If I was a visitor I'd always want several things in a guest room. First a comfortable bed, but I also love bedside lights that allow me to read in bed, attractive pictures (prints) on the walls that blend colours from your bedding, maybe a bookcase with some books that also has space for me to set out makeup etc. In a friend's place on Jersey our rom also had a basket full of "things" - everything from toothbrushes through washing goodies, nice smelling skin lotion, and anything else you can think of. The bedside tables you have hold virtually nothing, so something with a cupboard or some drawers would be useful. You might also think of painting the wall behind the bed to also pick up colours from bedding/prints.
Im sorry still looks bland to me. I think lighter colours would make the room more inviting for a guest room.
