This might sound silly, but is there any harm in my collie sleeping in the toilet of a night? He just loves sleeping in there for some reason but I'm worried the cold floor is bad for his joints? The toilet is right outside my room...

My dog sleeps in the bathtub. But it bogglers me that a collie could fit in the toilet!
I wouldn't allow my dog to sleep in the toilet. She wouldn't fit (as you can tell, the bathtub is tight enough.) And I'd be afraid she's drown in the toilet. Besides, she might get crapped on in the night. http://aad.lomag.net/diddy/dogs/bathtub.html
In the actual toilet, yes. he'd be wet and soggy and depending on orientation, could drown ;-D.

In the toilet room (bathroom to those of us in the US), is fine - many dogs prefer a cool tile floor. If you have carpet in your bedroom, it's not unusual for a dog to seek out a nearby but cool surface.

Er ok, need to clarify obviously! It's not IN the actual toilet, it's in the room the toilet is in, which judging by the next post, is called the bathroom in the US. We don't call the toilet the bathroom because we have a...well, bathroom. Eek, I' m as confused as my dog..hehe.

Oh, ok. Well, I've never had a dog injured from sleeping in the bathroom unless they got stepped on in the night. They find the cooler floors more comfortable. It's always been a favorite gathering spot for my dogs.
I love these threads that involve words and English. In the U.S., the word is "bathroom." It has nothing to do with baths. On a camping trip, one might get a shovel from the backpack and go off into the woods alone to "go to the bathroom." A "half bath" is a room with only a toilet and a sink while a "full bath" has a toilet, a sink and a bathtub or shower stall. In Canada, from what I can tell, the word is "washroom." Presumably one washes one's hands there, but that's not normally the main reason one goes there.
So your dog is sleeping on the tile floor in the room with the toilet. Nope, no problem there. Especially in the summer, he likes the feel of cold tile against warm dogbelly. When I lived in the southern U.S., my dog always slept in the bathroom as opposed to the carpeted floor in my bedroom. Now in New England, my dog chooses the carpet, the bottom of the basement stairs where there's cement and no carpet or the living room couch depending on the temperature for her comfort.

Okay, so who calls them restrooms? Why? I mean it isn't as if one goes in there to take rest.

I would think that depends on definition. And I do know enough men that seem to "take a rest" in the restroom/bathroom.
