I use classroombookings version 1 and it's great perfect for schools especially with 2 week time tables.
Can't wait for version 2.
Yes Classroom Bookings!! havent used it as long as some users but i think its great perfect for schools..
and if you have any idea's i am sure if you throw them webman's way he would try and put them in the next version
I must confess that the theme is downloadable from oswd.org here, so I take no credit for that, only for integrating it (with some difficulty) with MRBS!
Student network status on the screen is nothing to do with MRBS - it's just a link there as I am using the user database from MRBS (we don't have AD authentication), given that we only wanted staff to see it - was easier using MRBS authentication!
It is going off the original query of the OP though to find a suitable system. Whilst MRBS is good (because it's free!), it isn't necessarily 100% suitable in it's vanilla state for everyone. webman's system, although never tried by myself, does seem to be orientated towards the school environment (especially the 2-week timetabling, which I desperately would like in mrbs)!
We have been using BOB
» Free online multi week timetable room booking system for schools & colleges from online school tools » Free Online School Tools - Detentions, Praise Postcards & Room Booking. Free software for schools fo a while and it works really well and is free.
We have put a few suggestions to the site and they have made changes. `
There are also some other parts to the site that we have been using.

We currently use Room Booking Software Cyberforth Room Booking System Home
Personally i find it very fiddly when setting up timetabled rooms but this is down to the fact that we run a two week timetable at school and holidays influence which week we start back on (it doesnt carry on from what we ended on!!!) Because of this we have to (re)create the timetable structure every term
Obviously any room booking system would suffer because of this, but I have used the Devizes one at a previous and it is a darn sight easier to manage/administer IMHO
MRBS Here too...
Running nicely under IIs 7... Staff find it easy to use and understand
Please check educa intranet for schools - Intranet4schools.com - Home
Simple classroom booking system with 2 weeks option - it works well.
Plus few more useful modules for school management
I'm aiming for some time this year, that's all I can say
