Hi neil mac,
If your sure you have wired correctly, must have loose terminal check all wires are secure in terminals, other than that re-check cables are correctly in terminal blocks. It sounds like your live supply from previous fitting Stairs/bathroom is not connected right that's why no power to your bedrooms as they will be the next in the wiring circuit.
Some good diagrams explaining loop in method in the doctors projects under lighting and switches.
Best of Luck
