How bad is the damage to the valve seats?  Can you not just replace the valves? :)

Getting bent valves out can be a complete nightmare.

when my Mk3 ABF belt failed at low speed - I used anything available: hammers, pry bars, pliers, screwdrivers and nearly destroyed a brand new valve removal tool

Hope you get sorted soon

Sounds a little pricey but not too far off. Yeah have a look, if the damage is minimal you may as well repair it. It's just time consuming! :)

It was £9 and £11 + vat for the valves 

Hopefully I'll get them out the head this weekend when I can get to my workshop
