This site says that it is indeed a "salle de douche" although it states that this is a "small bathroom without toilet", and that a "salle d'eau" is a "shower room".

Plenty of bilingual sites do however indicate that "salle de douche" is indeed a "shower room".

I'm not sure whether there's any hard and fast rule regarding which has a washbasin and which doesn't, to be honest.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Sounds right, since there is also "sdd avec wc", so presumably there is no toilet if its not mentioned. Perhaps "sdd" includes a sink, "s d'eau" doesn't?
